Grade 1 Listed Country House is fully protected with vast temporary roof

The team at Cusworth Hall in Doncaster have completed the erection of the vast temporary roofs required to protect the Grade 1 listed building and treasured historic archives in the roof void to enable significant re-roofing works to progress.

The listed country house was built between 1740-1744 for local land owner William Wrightson by George Platt a local mason/architect. It has been restored in recent times to transform it into a popular visitor attraction and museum.

The vast temporary roofs have been an essential element of the re-roofing works to ensure that the historic archives are fully protected during the works from the elements. During the four weeks it took to erect the intricate scaffolding and temporary roofs a bat was found in the west wing, the team has therefore been liaising closely with local ecologists to work around this.

The £335k project is scheduled for completion in Spring 2015.
